I don't think many on this forum have truly grasped the magnitude of NYC's evolving skyline.
I have noticed that New York is having this skyscraper boom as the economy of the US is improving.

I thought I described what I see in the drawings pretty well, just my interpretation. The elevation I posted is from official DOB filing. Of course things might have changed since this filing. In the absence of floor plans for the mechanical floors only time will tell if this is correct.
Well that would depend on whether or not the flower pot could reach terminal velocity within only 140 ft. A chair might reach terminal but I think a flower pot would need a little more time.

Apparently, you have failed to notice if you use the word small.

New York is on a separate plane from the rest of the country, and real estate in Manhattan plays by completely different rules. I wouldn't call this a 'small' skyscraper boom, either. It's 10x crazier than any of the booms in the last century.

I was just thinking this. Does Sbarn hang on SSC, or is he strictly a SSP guy? He's done some of the greatest mockups I've seen, like these:

I think the ESB looks more integrated into the skyline, with the new supertalls poping up, then now. Bring it, NYC.

The weight of an object does not determine the time until terminal velocity; it is the shape (amount of drag).

Within the next month, it should surpass its Park Avenue neighbor, becoming the tallest tower on the block and beggining to be able to be seen from afar.

the picture is epic:nice glassy buildings combining with the mostly concrete (?) buildings. I think it really stands out.

I'm finally beginning to see the crane poking above the Franklin building from my apartment a few blocks away - really looking forward to this breaking through to the skyline!

BTW, I'm curious what that crane on the left of this picture is for?



From where I am, it looks to be just west of 520 Madison. Not sure what would be reaching that high in that general neighborhood...anyone know?

That would be the Baccarat Tower on 53rd Street between Sixth and Fifth ... and your view is nothing short of incredible!

Already taller than most buildings in my city. All this current and future development in NYC is soooo exciting!

Going to have to start relying on photos taken from afar to get an idea on its height now, as the incompetent cameramen can't seem to raise the cameras to a higher floor which therefore completely ruins the time lapse and idea to begin with.

just by backing away 100 yards would make a big difference
